Abstract

The apparatus transports transistors 10, having a cylindrical casing from a supply point at the right and delivers them with their leads 11 correctly oriented to an exit point at the left. The leads project from one end of the transistor and are located on three corners of a square. The span between those two leads on the diagonal of the square is greater than their distance to the other lead. :AB Pressure applied to the transistors from a point at the right moves them to the left in a guideway having a side rail 12 on which a pair of leads rests. A pair of spaced triangular notches 13 and 14 are disposed in the rail for rotating counterclockwise improperly oriented transistors either once or twice, depending on orientation, so that the leads with the long span come to rest on the rail.

Transistor Transporting Apparatus

The apparatus transports transistors 10, having a cylindrical casing from a supply point at the right and delivers them with their leads 11 correctly oriented to an exit point at the left. The leads project from one end of the transistor and are located on three corners of a square. The span between those two leads on the diagonal of the square is greater than their distance to the other lead. :AB Pressure applied to the transistors from a point at the right moves them to the left in a guideway having a side rail 12 on which a pair of leads rests. A pair of spaced triangular notches 13 and 14 are disposed in the rail for rotating counterclockwise improperly oriented transistors either once or twice, depending on orientation, so that the leads with the long span come to rest on the rail. The notches 13 and 14 have a horizontal span which is less than the long span of two of the leads so that they are ineffective to rotate properly oriented transistors.

The brushes 15 maintain the transistors in the guideway as they are being rotated.
